Sunil Philip Narine
(West Indies Cricketer)

A lethal off-spinner and an aggressive left handed batsman, Sunil Narine is a Trinidadian cricketer who represents West Indies in international cricket. He has also represented West Indies U-19 and earned a call to Trinidad and Tobago squad after taking all ten wickets in a trial match in 2009.


One of the key performers in West Indies winning World T20 title in 2012 and Kolkata Knight Riders’ two title victories in 2012 and 2014, Narine has a bag full of variations which include – carrom ball, knuckle ball, doosra and regular off spin. A sure shot in ODI and T20s, Narine is yet to make a mark in Test cricket.
